Our local Show

Today was our local show!! We took X and went with some friends!! We had a great day!! They have a little boy A who is only 3 weeks younger than X so we get together regularly for playdates! The boys loved the farm animals in the petting zoo and all the excitement of Sideshow Alley! It was so nice to go to the show with kids - even though they are only 8 months old!! It will be crazy next year, when they can actually ask for things!

Here are some photos that I took to remember the day!!

They had all these cool dinosaurs that X just couldn't take his eyes off!!

Loving all the farm animals. He wasn't scared AT ALL! Just wanted to touch and pat everything!

Loved sitting on the display tractor! Maybe he will be a farmer when he grows up?? ha ha ha

He loved the little tractors too.....although not as much as the big one!! :)

His first go of putting the balls in (this case) the duck!! He needed a lot of help from his dad, as he just wanted to eat the balls!

Playing with his prize. I love this picture of my two boys at the show!! Love them to bits!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Daring you to Scrap Entry

Well I have completed another challenge!! YAY!! This one was for Daring You to Scrap. This was lots of fun and I really enjoyed making this page (notice a theme strip photos, misting and lots of photos of X are a few of my favourite things at the moment).

The criteria this month was to use 'old school photos' such as Photo Strips or Polaroids! I am loving photo strips at the moment as I am getting to use all the 'out take' photos of X. In these photos we had a mini photo shoot in the back yard to show off his first mohawk!! I just think it was one of the cutest things ever!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
This page was actually created using one of the AWESOME kits from Polly Scrap Kits. Love the kits there!! :)

This page also featured a super cute robot button from KittyRobot!! Love it!!

123 Challenges

I actually scrapped this month.....and thought that I would enter some of the awesome challenge sites that I always look at and say that I will enter....but never do!! Over at 123 Challenge the March Challenge was:

Colour - Metallic Blue (I painted the numbers with blue paint and Kindy Glitzed over the top, the thread used is a metallic blue, added some sparkly and shiny brads and jewels, I also made a dark blue flower out of satin material, used blue glimmer mist and also coloured in some pearls so that they were shiny blues as well)

Word - 123 (used in my title)

Technique/Embellishment - use something organic (I used wooden letter tiles)

Of course I have scrapped the adorable Mr X - I just cant seem to scrap anyone or anything else at the moment!! We spent the weekend in Brisbane a few weeks ago and we went to the Brisbane Museum and I just wanted to get a nice picture of X to remember the day, although there was NO WAY he was going to unfortunately what you see, really were the best photos we got of him. ha ha ha I am loving photo strips at the moment - so I have printed some out and used these rather than bigger photos!

Thanks for visiting!!
